Grasping Social Media: How To Break The Giant Into Manageable Pieces

I was intrigued by what I would find when “Google This: The New Media Driver’s License” by Richard T.

The cause of issue that I chose to address was the low wage given to waitresses and bartenders before tips. Many believe that they don’t necessarily deserve to have a higher minimum wage, or need one, but there are many issues that can arise from this low sum of money.
